Apocalypse Mixtape

Apocalypse Mixtape Part VII: The Final Sacrifice

The Cold War was the war that just kept on giving. The space race, Yakov Smirnoff, Invasion U.S.A.; none of these would exist without the paranoia and constant fear that with the press of a button the world would be reduced to a cinder and we'd all start wearing clothes made out of used tires and spikes, driving sweet tricked-out dune buggies and fighting in a gladiator ring for the pleasure of Tina Turner.

Dear John,

Apocalypse Mixtape Part V: A New Beginning

In Apocalypse Mixtape we search out songs with themes that fit into the horror genre.

On today's very special episode of Apocalypse Mixtape, instead of single songs, we're going to look at some album-length horror based music.

Album: Fantomas - The Director's Cut
Song: Rosemary's Baby

Apocalypse Mixtape Part IV: The Final Chapter

In Apocalypse Mixtape we investigate music with horror movie-type themes.

Skip James

Devil Got My Woman

Apocalypse Mixtape Part III

Oingo Boingo

"No One Lives Forever"

Apocalypse Mixtape Part II

When I started this series I considered laying some ground rules excluding certain bands from the Mixtape because they're too easy and obvious and it would just be lazy to include them. I like The Misfits as much as anybody but do you really need me to single them out as having written some pretty decent horror-themed songs?

Apocalypse Mixtape Part I

For me, the horror genre and music are the chocolate and peanut butter of pop culture. People have been telling spooky stories and playing music around campfires from our earliest prehistory and the two have been intertwined from the beginning. In that spirit, I'm starting an ongoing series in this space I call Apocalypse Mixtape where I'll look at some songs that touch on the same themes as the movies this site's dedicated to.
